Train2Game blog readers will know that here, we’re fans of modding, because not only does it allow you to practice your game development skills, but it gives you a portfolio to show potential employers.
However, it’s also a way to add more silliness and fun to games, and that’s exactly what a modder named Snoopey has done with his Doctor Zoidberg Mudcrab mod for The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. It was released was released towards the end of last month.
The mod does exactly what it says it will, replacing the skins and sounds of Skyrim’s mud crabs with the likeness and voice clips of Futurama’s Doctor Zoidberg. You can see the Zoidberg Mudcrabs in action in the video below, right here on The Train2Game Blog.

As previously reported by The Train2Game Blog, official modding tools for Skyrim, featuring Valve integration, are set to be released sometime this month.
Not only is modding an excellent way for those on Train2Game courses to practice their skills, but it can also provide that extra experience needed to get into the games industry.
“It’s a really good way for someone to get noticed because it shows that you’re able” Valve’s Chet Faliszek previously told the Train2Game blog on the subject of modding.
“Normally modders have to work as a team and that’s important, and they also have to be able to finish something and that’s really important. So those two things together are a really good way to demonstrate that you’re ready to work in the industry.”
Id Software’s Tim Willits has also previously told the Train2Game Blog that modding is a great way to get into the games industry.
So Train2Game, what would you use the Doctor Zoidberg mod? Is modding something you’d like to try in 2012?
